The country icon, Dolly Parton, is not only going to sing a duet with the pop star, Katy Perry, at this years ACM Awards but she is also going to receive a special award during the upcoming ceremony.
This will be their first-ever live duet together. Additional details, including the song they will sing, were not revealed.
Parton will receive the Tex Ritter Award for her Coat Of Many Colors TV Movie. The honor “is given to a movie released and/or receiving major exposure during the preceding calendar year, featuring or utilizing country music.” This award is named, of course, for country singer and actor Tex Ritter.
Dolly released Coat of Many Colors in December 2015, as her first made-for-TV movie for NBC. Thirteen million viewers tuned in during the film’s debut.
Coat of Many Colors was also the most-watched movie on broadcast TV since May of 2012 and earned NBC its best total-viewer results in the time period since 2009’s ER series finale, excluding sports and live musicals. Parton was honored with a Movieguide Award for Most Inspiring TV Program of 2015 for the film, which is set for release on DVD in early May.
